Well Dood, I am definitely impressed by the consistency of your artwork and your updates. I've been following this for a bit now and It's kept my interest pretty well, though every once in awhile there might be a weird perspective issue. Still, it's very good, and I'll be reading!

I actually had a question though. What website do you use for hosting? My friend and I are starting up a webcomic soon and I just wanted to get some advice.

I use ComicFury, which is as good they come for free hosting. Ads are optional, you can code your own layouts if so inclined, linkbacks to the host are optional, if you have your own domain you can set it up to work with that, and Kyo (best admin ever) is on the ball when it comes to making sure the site is always up and in optimal condition. Basically, it's like a normal paid webhost only with free on-site advertising and a forum.
Also if you happen to be like me and have the HTML skills of a dead toad, the provided "simple" layout selections are very easy to tweak to your preferences without being obnoxious, which is quite handy.
There are places that charge you damn good money that aren't half as good as ComicFury is for free.

More generic webcomic advice, if you want to do on-time regular updates like this, then before you launch a website, post an ad, or do anything else at all, make a buffer. Just get 10-12 pages done early at the least, so you know how long it takes you to make pages and have a dozen or so on hand for situations where you can't work on pages. You will never be able to get pages done on time every week forever, and if you have no buffer you'll get bogged down trying to catch up, and then your comic will wither and die.

Thanks Dood! I've been talking to loads of people about it so the buffer Idea is already freshly pounded into my brain. ;) I'll have to check that site out, because like you, my code skills are equivalent to those of a dead toad.

Poor commander, all he can do is scream at people and hope something happens. :P

And I like how you did the shield around the ship, just having it partially show up where the impact was, clever way to do it.

Next week: Turner!

What is this mysterious second member of the titular duo? Is it a strange tentacled abomination from only the darkest of nightmares? Is it a train that transforms into a bug? Or is it just some woman in her early 20s with crazy hair? TUNE IN AND FIND OUT.

Since when do you define redhairs as "crazy hair" ?

I've noticed that the gaming weapons people obsess over almost more than the gameplay or characters are always the ugliest, stupidest things ever. Assassin's Creed has the fingerblade (finger remover), Halo has the "energy sword", and God of War has what can only be described as a weaponized application of Link's famous hookshot.

Who makes these things popular anyway?

Nah, they're just a terrible business.

Early post because there's only one page this week.

Episode #102 starts up next week, so try to mail off your complaints to the editor and/or renew your subscription before that point.

I love that last page. Dood, this is an awesome comic series, and I love the characters and the colors!

Now you have my itching in my seat ready to read the next page. ;)

The long-distance rates are god-awful too.

Next week's update will be on Wednesday because working double pages into a schedule is like substituting a Duplo into a Lego set.

I remember way back in the day when I had a pathetically small monitor and tried to read webcomics. It seemed like each one would go out of their way to make their pages as huge as possible, and on forums banner ads or poor programming would often make huge pictures unseeable without going to each individual one and hitting "view image".


Now that I have an unnecessary huge screen (seriously, why make them this big), I can finally exact my revenge! ON THE SPOOKIEST DAY OF ALL! MUAHAHAHAHAAAA

Also that one comic Scorp makes with the stabby things and the airbenders is updating again, be sure to check it out. I dunno what his update schedule is yet but you'll figure it out I'm sure.
